What is involved in setting up my wireless audio device?

Step One: The Play-Fi App

  • Download the Play-Fi app to your iOS or Android phone/tablet from either the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store, the Amazon store. If you are using a PC, download the Play-Fi app from the Play-Fi website.
  • Step Two: Your Wireless Network

  • The basis of a strong Play-Fi experience is a high quality wireless network
  • We recommend against using the modem/router combo provided by your ISP
  • Make sure your primary Play-Fi source (phone/tablet/PC) is connected to the network that you want the wireless system to join
  • Step Three: Your Wireless Audio Device

  • The process for connecting your wireless audio device to your network varies by device. Please refer to your product’s manual for specific setup documentation.
  • Step 4 (optional): Add a Sub

  • If you are planning on using a sub, connect it to your wireless audio device using an RCA subwoofer cable. Please note, the Motion Vision X also allows wireless connection of a compatible subwoofer.
  • Turn on the subwoofer output.
    • Bravado

      • These devices automatically detect that a sub is connected and adjust the internal crossovers accordingly.
    • Crescendo

      • Turn on the subwoofer by pressing the Sub Out button on the back of the speaker.
    • Crescendo X

      • Turn on the subwoofer by pressing the Sub Out button on the back of the speaker.
    • Forte

      • These devices automatically detect that a sub is connected and adjust the internal crossovers accordingly.
    • Motion Vision X

      • Subwoofer output must be turned on. If using a wired connection, use the menu to select “SUB > WIRED”. If using a SWT-2 wireless subwoofer connection sync your wireless subwoofer and turn on output by selecting“SUB > WIRELS > SYNC”.

    Step 5 (optional): Run ARC [BRAVADO and FORTE only]

  • If you are using a subwoofer, connect your sub prior to running ARC so that the sub is included in the room correction measurement
  • Download the latest version of ARC software.
  • Install ARC on your Windows PC.
  • Connect the included microphone to your PC or laptop using the provided USB cable
  • Open ARC and select the wireless audio device you want to run ARC on. The system will walk you through the steps.
